    La Giant Causeway è una scogliera costituita da circa 40.000 colonne di basalto ad incastro. Si trova nella contea di Antrim sulla costa nord-orientale dell'Irlanda del Nord. La maggior parte delle colonne sono di forma esagonale. Circa 50 a 60 milioni di anni fa, durante il Paleogene, Antrim è stata oggetto di un'intensa attività vulcanica Quando la lava raffredda rapidamente, si verificano delle contrazioni. La leggenda narra che un guerriero irlandese, Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool), avrebbe costruito una passerella fino alla Scozia poichè era stato sfidato da un gigante scozzese Benandonner. Una volta giunto in Scozia notò che Benandonner era molto molto più grande di lui e così cercò di pensare a una via d'uscita. Sua moglie, Oonagh, uscì con un'idea geniale. Quando Benandonner attraversò il ponte a cercarlo, Fionn si nascose in una culla travestito come un bambino. Quando Benandonner arrivò, Oonagh gli disse che Fionn era fuori a tagliare la legna, ma sarebbe tornato presto. Inoltre gli mostrò il “figlio di Fionn”. Quando Benandonner vide la grandezza del bambino, non ebbe più alcun desiderio di vedere il padre! Benandonner fuggì a casa in preda al terrore, distruggendo la passerella dietro di lui, in modo che l’enorme nemico non riuscisse a seguirlo.

    The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland. Most of the columns are hexagonal. Some 50 to 60 million years ago, during the Paleogene period, Antrim was subject to intense volcanic activity. As the lava cooled rapidly, contraction occurred. Legend tells of an Irish warrior Fionn mac Cumhaill, who built a causeway to Scotland because he was challenged by a Scottish giant, Benandonner. Now Benandonner was much much larger than Fionn, so he tried to think of a way out. His wife, Oonagh, came up with an ingenious idea. When Benandonner crossed the bridge looking for him, Oonagh disguised Fionn as a baby and tucked him in a cradle. When Benandonner came, Oonagh told him that Fionn was out woodcutting, but he should be back soon. She showed him 'Fionn's son'. When Benandonner saw the size of the baby, he had no desire to see the father! Benandonner fled home in terror, ripping up the Causeway behind him, so the 'enormous Finn MacCool', would not follow him.
